The Signature Group is running Recruitment Roadshows to encourage more people to join the industry after challenges posed by Covid-19 and Brexit. Interested candidates are invited to come along to one of Signature’s venues in Edinburgh, Glasgow or Aberdeen and put their skills to the test with the chance of securing a job on the day.
The Recruitment Roadshows will take place in Aberdeen on the 7th of September at 4pm at the Paramount Bar, in Glasgow on the 8th of September at 11am at The Spiritualist, and in Edinburgh on the 9th of September at Cold Town House.
To register a place at one of these sessions, email email@example.com.
It has been unable to open some of its venues across Scotland post-lockdown due to staff shortages, and the company says it needs at least 100 new members of staff to allow all venues to reopen and operate normally.
The three-hour session will include interactive team sessions, introductions to key suppliers, success stories from current Signature employees and an in-depth explanation of the benefits to working for the group.
Business Development Director of Signature Group, Louise Maclean, said, “We simply don’t have the staff to fully reopen our business.
“We’re pleased to say we have plenty of customers, but just not enough colleagues, and we know this is a problem facing the whole sector at the moment. There is truly a staffing crisis in bars, hotels and restaurants across the country and it’s holding back the economic recovery of our industry.
“Our recruitment roadshows will be a great opportunity for keen individuals to come and speak with us directly to get a feel for what it’s like to work for Signature. There are plenty of roles to be filled and you will be joining a tight-knit team with a passion for all things food, drink and hospitality.”
Business Development Manager, Hannah McConnachie, 29, joined Signature ten years ago and has quickly progressed her career within the company, from working front of house to coordinating Christmas bookings and events and overseeing all community activities across Signature venues, as well as all other marketing activity.
Hannah said: “This is a great opportunity for young people looking to start their career in the industry. With so many jobs available, the possibilities are endless, and you just don’t know which path it might lead you on.
“Ten years ago, I began working with Signature as a member of the front of house team and since then I’ve worked my way up to Business Development Manager and it’s been a fantastic journey. No two days are the same and there are no limits to what you can be or achieve.”
